    At this crucial juncture in the push to pass an economic recovery package, President Obama finds himself in the most unlikely of places: He is losing the message war.

    Despite Obama’s sky-high personal approval ratings, polls show support has declined for his stimulus bill since Republicans and their conservative talk-radio allies began railing against what they labeled as pork barrel spending within it.

    The sheer size of it — hovering at about $900 billion — has prompted more protests that are now causing some moderate and conservative Democrats to flinch and, worse, hesitate.

    The anxiety over lost momentum seemed almost palpable this week as the president in television interviews voiced frustration with his White House’s progress and the way his recovery program was being demonized as a Democratic spending frenzy.

    In Obama’s own words in an NBC interview, it’s his job to “get this thing back on track.”

    I really do not understand the hysterical slavering over Rush. If he's such a non-entity and a goofball, why don't libs just ignore him like we ignore Maher???

    I know why. He's not. Hence the feeding frenzy.
